by the pentagon still occupying afghanistan. the one change we have seen this year has been the withdrawal of the finishing of the withdrawal from iraq. that is important because that was for so long the centerpiece of where u.s. troops were fighting around the world. now we are looking at afghanistan as the biggest war zone that is acknowledge. the thing that is so interesting about the john that i think exit very difficult for people like you and i who want to on whatever day look at where are the u.s. troops and where the bases, the list that we see are very hard to actually get good information. i was looking yesterday at a few different lists on the pentagon's various web sites. one of them is a list of personnel, of where our u.s. soldiers are and it's about 195,000 u.s. soldiers and sailors and marines, veterans based around the world. and we hear in general there are 150 countries but when you look at the list there are only about 40 countries that are listed. why is that? then the then you look in you see well we are only listing the countries where there is more than 100 troops t
the sequestered . but did so by impacted the pentagon less heavily than the sequestered it. but divided government, i think you get the question. president said he does not want to change the money for the pentagon. mitch mcconnell said we are not raising taxes to ransom the pentagon budget cuts. a lot of focus has been on the pentagon but these are more concerned about the $50 billion in domestic discretionary spending restraint every year. you did to the republican study committee. the announced all a thing worse than sequestration would not be having savings. this stampede attempted did not take. he denied a demand that the defense budget be remain untouched, either of the public opinion or the house. i think sequestration happens. the only thing i could imagine is if they -- the r's and d's would both rather take it out of entitlements rather than the annual budgets. could they cut a deal where they save the same amount of money but out of entitlements? that is the only compromise i could see. then you get to the grand bargain idea. it seems every time i have these conversations were people as

the 2014 handover to afghan authorities. our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence has been looking into this. what's being considered for a u.s. role in afghanistan after the scheduled pull-out? >> reporter: if you thought 2014 was going to be the end of u.s. troops' involvement, that does not look to be the case. although publicly pentagon officials say it's too early, our source, a u.s. official is telling us that there are several options being discussed inside the pentagon, one of which is to keep about 10,000 u.s. troops in afghanistan past 2014. a small number of those troops would be special operations forces that would be dedicated to counterterrorism missions. the rest of the forces would either be training or advising afghan troops or providing medical support and air support, things like that. there are other options with fewer troops, some with more troops. but this one fits right in the middle of that spectrum. he also told me that one of the deal-breakers when it came to iraq, immunity for u.s. troop, in other words, that they wouldn't be prosecuted under local laws l
there and 100,000 u.s. paid contractors paid by the pentagon still occupying afghanistan. the one change we have seen this year has been the withdrawal of the troops from iraq. that was the centerpiece from where u.s. troops were fighting around the world. now, we're looking at afghanistan as the biggest war zone that is acknowledged. the interesting thing that makes it difficult for people like you and i who want to look at where the u.s. troops are, the lists that we see are a very hard to actually get good information. i was looking yesterday at a few different lists on the pentagon's web sites. one of them is a list of personnel where are u.s. shoulders are. there are about 195,000 u.s. soldiers and marines that are based around the world. we hear in general they are in about 150 countries. when you look at the list, there is only about 40 countries listed. why is that? we are only listing the countries where there is more than 100 troops permanently based there. that is kind of weird because that means is only about 1/4 of the country -- about 1/5 of the countries where we have troops are m
of strategy, yes, it's essential, important, including for the first time two years ago, the pentagon had a conference i was there in which we discussed india and american cooperation in the pacific. never happened before. it does not mean [indiscernible] we are taking positions which are corporative, dynamic, and which recognize that nation's change. people change. we have to keep abreast of changing conditions, if you like. >> i want to pose one last thing. i look today to see how much china held in u.s. treasurys serves about 1.55 trilion. -- $1.55 trillion. we often talk about power in a classical sense, but there is no doubt economies matter. whether it has been leon panetta, bob gates, admiral mullen, the constant focus on the economic dynamism of the country -- i do not know canada's net account with china, but it raises the fundamental question of whether american debt is an asset or liability. the conference yesterday or recently in davos for someone made the comment that it is the size of the pentagon and the size of american that there were too big to fail and those debt holder

and shaped by general jones who has unique experience of serving in the pentagon and in the military and as the national security adviser to the president. he made a point that i was familiar with based on my experiences, that we had all these different agencies and departments and people all over the government as well as in the congress that had parts of the energy package but it never had a way to be brought together to take a look at what should be our energy policy and came up with this idea of the council which we are recommending where you pull all of the different departments chaired by the department of energy secretary, agencies, that will reach out to all the different interested parties to make sure their views are being taken into consideration. to do this quadrennial agency review somewhat similar to what they have done at the pentagon. it is very different from what they do at the pentagon. it is a technique that i have observed that works and is helpful for the department of the defense. talking about a strategy, a broader view, and then through the report get into th
. with regard to iran you i think the president and pentagon do not want war with iran, but there are people in this country certain lynette net and his allies in the united states on the threat to build nuclear weapons by iran, i think the president doesn't want to fight another war. i think he is right in. that we have to engage in nation building at home, she right in tune with the american people. >> i think it's very clear the weak american leadership sent a signal to the middle east that we don't want to lead. iraq, one of more tragic aspects we lost over 4,000 brave young americans. we intended to leave a residual force. president didn't want to see it happen. we see iraq unrafblg. we see a dramatic increase to violence. they just condemned their vice president to death. al-qaeda is now set up training camps in western iraq. iranian airplanes are flying iraq from syria and our failure to intervene in any way and establishing a safe zone, al-qaeda is coming in there in droves. when this thing ends and all conflicts do end, we're going to have one heck of a time with the al-qaeda elemen
and the unique experience even at the pentagon and security advisor to the president. he made an early point i was familiar with based on my experience with 35 years of congress that we have all these different agencies and departments and people all over the government as well as congress that had parts of the energy package that never had a way to take a look at what should be our policy and came up with this idea the council to recommend here comeau recalled the different departments chaired by the department of energy and secretary in agencies that reach out to all the interested parties to make sure their views take consideration. but it is royal energy review. it's very different from what they do at the pentagon. with this technique but it's helpful and it will be hall posters talk about a strategy in the broader view through the quaternary old report to really get into details. and the congress of course we've got all these different committees as part of the jurisdiction. i had a simple solution. i called the two minute she -- saint pete, we need some, but not. every now and then i wo
thursday on c-span 2. >> defense secretary leon panetta looks at how budget cuts could affect the pentagon. we spoke tuesday evening at the center for new american security about the fiscal cliff and fed priorities. >> thank you for coming. it is an honor to be back and an honor to be introducing my old boss. as you know, secretary of the net debt is one of the most respected and experienced hands in washington. his resume is legendary. chairman of the budget committee back in the day when they actually passed a budget, director of the office of management and budget, and chief of staff to president clinton when the white house, director of the central intelligence agency, and now secretary of defense, so the question is what in the world are you going to do next. this extraordinary resume does not do justice to the man. leon panetta is a wonderful human being and in some ways a man of contrasts. i am going to give you examples. he is known among his counterparts around the world for his warm italian bear hugs. he is also known for the laser light focus he displayed on hunting down osama b

that the money from business stays as it is. one of the foundations of our short term borrow pentagon. >> maybe it was a problem she thinks needs to be fixed but a lot of people in the industry think it doesn't need to be fixed, specifically the idea of pricing that could go day to day and off the dollar. priced at the market. >> exactly. they're talk about a floating map that doesn't work. if you move $2.7 trillion in assets to the bank's balance sheet, it could be an opaque marker. therefore maybe there's some type of reform necessary but not as far as she wanted. we're very interested to see what miss walter will do in the interim until theed a miss appoints a new -- >> why is that floating nab such a big thing? why do i care if it's 99.96 cents or it's 100.06 cents? >> great question. loss of principal. you put in $1 million overnight and you get that .996 overnight, you don't have a million dollars. investors won't utilize that investing tool anymore. it has to be preservation of capital and liquidity. that's what money funds are all about. >> they'd rather earn less at a bank than -- >> y

troubling of all according to the pentagon, the country's national security would be in serious jeopardy. if congress and the white house do not act. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor p.o.w. or play on foxnews.com. they cut the deal that put the automatic spending cuts in place and these automatic tax hikes in place thinking this will never happen. they went back, said all right, now that we have it in place let's try to fix it. well they failed. there wasn't the political will to deal with it at the time they passed. there wasn't the political will at the time they tried to deal with it and it was a complete political debach kill. now you have some people saying let it happen. the let's see what happens. we may be in a better negotiating pitch if we let it happen and american people are the ones who are going to pay. >> well, megyn, these are not just rank-and-file democrats talking about this. patty murray, who is the head of the senate democrats campaign arm. these are democrats who say, hey look, if the republican won't yield, if though won't give us what we wan

, it is action the pentagon last week, a woman said i had my first kid -- i say to buy vacation and sick days and use them all up. even in the federal government, we need paid leave. i think beyond that, high- quality accessible daycare. i do not understand why that is not much more of a political issue than it is. those will in fact all women -- most of us in the room can manage without the last one. we can buy it or find it, but it ought to be far more general and accessible for those who cannot afford it. those issues cover the waterfront. there are other issues that do not. the kind of flexibility i am talking about will be very helpful for women who have a shot at leadership positions and might allow women to stay in the game so that when you have kids and need to do work differently you do not give up on the career you train for an educated for and started for and are still eligible for leadership down the road. flexibility for people at the bottom of the chain can mean something really different -- it can mean you work 15 or 20 hours a week and you work a very unusual times. you saw th
government is money borrowed to sustain food stamps as well as the pentagon. we ought to be thinking of that in terms of our values and our future. let me speak to a couple of elements here that i think progressives should keep in mind. progressives cannot afford to stand on the sidelines in this fiscal cliff debate. important critical decisions will be made soon that will affect this country for 10 years. i think we need to be a part of this conversation. we need to be open to some topics and some issues that are painful and hard for us to talk about. we cannot stand by the sidelines in denial that this is ever going to engage us in the things we value. we cannot be so night -- not leave to believe that just taxing the rich will solve our problems. i believe that is an important part of a solution. we have to look to reform and change that is significant, that preserves many of the values and programs that brought us political life, and we cannot believe that merely ignoring these programs or not engaging will solve the problem. pick up any of the newspapers and look for the full-pa

, where the number of public trust the pentagon on accordingly. so one might want to ask a question about proportionality. proportionate to the investment the state makes and who is making the decisions. we have a wonderful opportunity to lead the conversation. the governor, a year ago commissioned a committee to look at how do we strengthen in vermont the relationship and partnership between the university of vermont and the state. a very positive affirmation and approach on his part. the report came back and said that with 25 board of trustees members with the university of vermont, the proportion in light of the very substantial decrease in funding? it indicates that that is the lowest state funding for a public university per capita i don't know what the appropriate balance should be, but we will have an opportunity because the governor wants to have a discussion in the state about the relationship of public funding and who are the trustees and who should be making these decisions. perhaps thermopylae began in the conversation. >> i'm from the university of vermont and i came up to sa

has not decided on anything. he will evaluate proposals from the pentagon and elsewhere on what we might negotiate with the afghan government on a future presence in afghanistan procter we fulfill our commitments to end the war in afghanistan in 2014. that commitment and that presents would be very in scope as we talk about counterterrorism operations and the training of afghan forces. >> last one hour. the meeting with business leaders today, they're making progress on that front? >> the president did not have a meeting with business leaders today. tom donahue and others had a separate meeting with some senior people over here. jack lew and others. that's far the process we are engaged in that i described earlier, an ongoing conversation with leaders on capitol hill, rank-and-file, staff, others, business leaders large and small as well as civic, labor, other leaders will have a stake in this very important debate. >> is expected to meet with other stakeholders to date? >> not unaware of. >> you said you came out here to say that the president had spoken to the speaker and senate
of power today, it is the size of the pentagon and those devil is actually had a bigger problem than us. but i would be interested in when you're thinking about policy, do you look at that the source of leverage, or did this restrain american options in terms of what you can do? >> with respect to the deficit and debt of the national security liability, we need our senior leadership and the ability to take it on. we have an opportunity to do so, we have a requirement to do so. the requirement and foundation of national power is ultimately economic in terms of global influence. and in terms of supporting the military. we have, i think, members of the house will step up in the coming months. >> how did you look at your surplus of the united states? do they say that we have america under control because of the treasury? >> superposition to the united states is very important. it is very decisive. so there is no intention for us with this economic relationship. >> i'm going to open it up to the floor. we have four microphones around the room. josh grogan is over here. >> thank you very muc
